Belgian MP does Nazi-style salute, says Zionists funded Holocaust

    It has emerged that far-right Belgian politician Laurent Louis gave three Nazi-style salutes in parliament.

    A supporter of Dieudonné’s Anti-Zionist Party, he was filmed performing the quenelles — made famous by the French comedian — in succession in January.

    Returning the compliment, Dieudonné called on Belgians to vote for Louis’s party, Debout les Belges (Down with Belgians), in May’s federal elections.

    Louis performed the quenelles after a speech in which he claimed that “the Holocaust was set up and financed by the pioneers of Zionism”.

    The president of the parliament, André Flahaut, condemned Louis’s words as “hateful”.

    Louis entered the Belgian parliament in 2010 as the sole representative of the populist People’s Party, from which he was expelled in 2011, both for racist statements against Roma and over claims that he sexually harassed his parliamentary assistant. Nonetheless, he remained in parliament as an independent, where he has been forging links with Islam, a party aiming to establish Sharia law in Belgium.

    The Belgian League against Antisemitism is seeking to bring charges against Louis.

    LOUIS APPEARS TO HAVE PLENTY OF POPULAR SUPPORT, WITH OVER 19,000 ‘LIKES’ ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE. HE HAS THE REQUISITE NUMBER OF SIGNATORIES REQUIRED TO STAND FOR RE-ELECTION, BUT IT IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT HIS PARTY WILL WIN ANY SEATS.
